It’s beginning to look a lot like Backstreet Christmas! On October 14, 2022, the Backstreet Boys released their very first Christmas album, ‘A Very Backstreet Christmas’. The vinyl version will be released in December. With a new album it means there will be promotional appearances. Five iHeartRadio Jingle Ball concerts throughout the U.S. are confirmed for December, and one concert will be live streamed. That’s not all they’re doing. An online event and a TV special were recently announced. Here is what we know so far.
